The phone is easy to use for talking and texting. My biggest grip is that is fails to notify me consistently when I get a call or text message when I have it on "vibrate only." I am a teacher and must keep it on vibrate. I have to remember to check the phone regularly. I have missed a few important messages, not to mention making my wife aggravated because I don't call her back in a timely manner.

I really liked my LG cosmos with the slide out keyboard so when it was time for an upgrade I wanted another slide out keyboard. Much to my dismay, after reading all the other reviews, I was very hesitant to get the cosmos 3. Well, I love it!!! So far, so good. I fully charged the battery before using it and I can get 2-3days without charging it. Also, the keys are bigger on the cosmos 3 than on my old cosmos. So glad I gave it a try instead of pooh-poohing it from the get go. I would recommend this phone to anyone who doesn't want anything fancy and they just need it for texting and phone calls.

Very easy to use and comfortably made. For a basic phone I cannot complain at all. Keys are a bit cumbersome for me but I have large hands.

I used this product to call, text, and take pics with. Overall the pictures are horrible, the call quality is good, and when I was texting the phone would freeze up for a good three seconds. The battery life is average for a basic phone. It has a 900 mAH battery. I think it should be bigger. You really have to get use to the 2.0 screen.. Its not big.. At first its hard to see everything. If you want a phone for texting and calling, this is your phone.

Well let me start out by saying if you want a phone for 5 years this will do it. I have tried to shatter this thing by throwing it in water, putting it in washer, throwing it as hard as I can against concrete and buried it in dirt. This thing will not break. I have had it for 5 years and now the phone now is upside down backwards and is all red. Some keys do not work anymore and my battery is taped together by electric tape. Just so you know this happened before i started trying to break it... Now i can not get rid of it, I can't get calls because my earpiece does not work and i can't talk into my speaker because it doesn't work so i pretty much have to live with this piece of garbage until i get my grades up thanks parents. P.S. when you drop this phone in public (for example at school) wait for people to not look so you can pick it up, saves the embarrassment....

I have had this phone since May 2013 and I like it for the most part, however it lags and my center button and down button have stopped working on the front, probably because of the frequent use. This phone does what it's supposed to, don't ever ask it to do any more than talk and text. The camera is a joke. The battery life is magnificent.

When I tried to view my pictures from my SD card from my other phone it would not show them. Not really knowing a lot about the Format process I hit yes to format it and it ERASED ALL MY PHOTOS from my card. It did not warn me it was erasing my pictures, it should ask you ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO ERASE or THIS WILL ERASE pictures !!! I LOST over 1,000 pictures !!! Cant get them back !!!!! Not Happy and I still cant use my SD card in my phone. It will not display the pictures !!!!

We've had 2 of these phones for over 2 years. Both still work great and give us just enough features for a basic phone.

Great phone, however, I would prefer that it would stay on at all times until I decided to cut it off. When you receive a text message the phone has a tendency to just shut itself off unless you are in the same room at the time of receiving the text in order to respond, otherwise you will be unaware that your phone is off until you try to text or call someone.
